I'm lying when I say I've 'finished' this book. I gave it a couple of goes, but never got beyond page 60. I couldn't get to grips with the cast of thousands (well, dozens, anyway)and perhaps its only fault really was in being a swashbuckling tale of derring-do. I don't really do swashbuckling tales of derring-do, so I'm not really one to judge. But I couldn't finish it.

i have read 3 akunin mysteries and this is my favorite so far. The use of narratives from different characters (reminiscent of wilkie collins, one of my all time favorites) worked well and added to the variety, making up for the closed setting of the ship.

Il primo di una serie di gialli storici ambientati in Russia nella seconda metà dell' ottocento.
E' un romanzo un po' anomalo, che gioca a sovvertire le aspettative del lettore a cominciare dal protagonista, Fedorin, che non si conforma a nessuno stereotipo dei detective da romanzo: non è geniale ma non è neanche un sprovveduto che si imbatte nella verità per caso, non è una macchietta come Poirot e neanche un cinico indurito dalla vita come i protagonisti degli hard boiled: è giovane e come tutti i giovani è impulsivo, idealista e ogni tanto un po' ingenuo, ma compensa con un gran coraggio ed un ottimo intuito. Insomma sembra dotato di una personalità ben distinta che lo rende un personaggio tridimensionale e non solo uno strumento per portare avanti la trama. Anche con la trama d'altronde l'autore si è divertito a spiazzare i lettori, giocando col sottogenere di riferimento: dovrebbe essere un intrigo internazionale ma a volte calca così la mano da sfociare in parodia, altre volte invece amplifica la suspense infilandoci dentro due o tre cambi di prospettiva che funzionano a meraviglia. Il tono dell'opera è molto leggero, permeato da una velata ironia che ci fa vivere tutto con distacco, ma il finale dimostra una volta di più che niente è come sembra in questo libro.
Il risultato è un romanzo schizofrenico, che mi ha lasciato frastornata ma con la voglia di approfondire e continuare la lettura dei volumi successivi.

I read this book, the first in the series of 13 novels about the late 19th century Russian detective Erast Fandorin, when it first appeared some twenty years ago. I remember little about the plot, but I remember vividly how I felt — and how shocked I was at the ending. I have now read it for a second time.

Boris Akunin is a brilliant story-teller and also an excellent historian. His books are set in a real historical time and place (imperial Russia from 1876 to the Bolshevik coup d’etat in 1917). He’s been compared to Arthur Conan Doyle and Ian Fleming, but I think Akunin (whose real name is Grigory Chkhartishvili and who was born in Georgia) is a unique voice. One should not rush to compare his Fandorin to James Bond or Sherlock Holmes.

In this first book in the series we meet a very young Fandorin at the beginning of his career in the police, naive, prone to make mistakes, an incurable romantic and someone with truly amazing luck. Initially investigating the very public suicide of a student, Fandorin stumbles upon a vast international conspiracy — and no, it’s not the one you’re thinking of. A real pleasure to read and highly recommended.
